Seeking Farm Land – 5-15 acres


?

Land Seeker Description

Hello All –

My small business is looking to lease around 5-15 acres of irrigated farmland for the 2021 season in within around 40 miles of Eugene.  Our previous farm. www.tanicreekfarm.com was certified organic since inception, while incorporating permaculture design and biodynamics to grow a very diverse array of vegetables, fruits, and flowers year-round. We incorporate the traditional European style of intensive market gardening, using primarily hand tools and very minimal fossil fuel input.  We only used rainwater via ponds to irrigate and solar power to run all electricity.  Many open-pollinated biodynamic and organic vegetable varieties were grown out for seed each season.  Biodynamic research and preparations were made and were used extensively in our compost and field management.  We also raised certified organic heritage geese and duck on the farm for sale through Tani Creek Waterfowl Farm, and raised a small herd of dairy goats, further enhancing the diversity and vitality of our farm organism.  Most recently, we have farmed and maintained a 40+ acre property outside of Fall Creek, Oregon successfully growing organic Hemp for the past four years.  We recently learned our lease was not going to be renewed for the 2021 season and are seeking a new place to plant seeds. 


What features of the property are essential?

Water. Tillable soil suitable for row crop. Within 40 miles of Eugene.
